Attitude Adjustment Kit- For those who claim assaults are “part of the job”.

“It’s just part of the job”. For years staff have been told criminal assaults by a drunk or drugged individual is just part of their job. Maybe this short video can help change perspective.

Here are a few things to think about:

  • A swig of a beer smells the same on a persons’ breath as one, two, or heck even five full beers.
  • Being intoxicated does not negate criminal acts (like assault)
  • Many states have laws regarding assaults on healthcare providers. Some have enhanced penalties.
  • Drunk is not the same as sick/injured. 
  • Just because a person is intoxicated does not automatically make them a patient.
